Waiting for Freire
A play in one Act. Written by Maha Bali through Tania Sheko (without Maha Bali knowing it).

A group of people are sitting in an overgrown garden, birds twittering around them.

Simon Ensor: One person’s weeds is another person’s capital.
Michael Weller: One person’s weeds is another person’s medicinal.
Sarah Honeychurch: My weeds are your flowers? Coz they ain’t mine.
Nick Kearney: Let a thousand weeds bloom.
Sarah Honeychurch: My weeds oppress (stifle) my flowers.
Simon Ensor: Is a weed an oppressed flower?
Maha Bali: My love for rhizomes is anti-capitalist.

It rains. More weeds grow. They do not leave.

    All my life I've tried to put it from me, saying Vladimir, be reasonable, you haven't yet tried everything. And I resumed the struggle. 3 years ago
